Thank you for your interest in the Board of Trustees election. There will be 6 candidates for the Board of Trustees and only 2 available seats.
An Election Compass has been made available to support the community members in the selection process. In many countries of the world during election campaigns so-called “Voting Advice Applications" (or “Election Compasses") are quite common to supporters voters in choosing a candidate (or party) to vote for during election campaigns. This Election Compass is possible thanks to an open source, volunteer project called "Open Election Compass".
Common questions on the Election Compass
How was the Election Compass created?
Every community member was invited to propose statements within the broader scope of the Board of Trustees. After the period of proposing statements, community members upvoted the statements they saw as the most differentiating and therefore helpful to learn from the candidates about their views. The Election Committee chose the final 15 statements. More details about the process on this page.
All 6 candidates were asked to position themselves to these statements. Their answers were then included in the Election Compass. Everyone using the tool will be able to easily see how the candidates align on topics perceived as important by the community for this election.
Can I trust the tool?
The Election Compass is based on the open source project called "Open Election Compass", whose source code is publicly available. No changes in the source code were made. The tool has been widely used also in other contexts, e.g. by media pages for the German parliamentary elections in 2022.
Is there another way to see the responses of the candidates?
